As soon as Liu Ming took the pulse connecting spiritual talisman, he immediately peeked at it. After careful examination, he put it in the Sumeru Snail around his waist. Although he looked calm on the surface, his eyes still showed unconcealed joy.
“Miss Jin, now can you tell me the dangerous place we are going now and what should I prepare?” Liu Ming said, raising his head to look at the woman in front of him.
“The place we are going this time is a cold pool. I want to retrieve a treasure left by my ancestors. However, this pool is extremely cold all year round. The cold and negative qi is thick here. Senior fellow apprentice needs to prepare a few more fire attribute spiritual weapons.” After Jin Yuhuan pondered for a while, she finally told Liu Ming where they were going.
Hearing that it was a cold pool, Liu Ming wasn’t bothered by it. However, when she mentioned fire attribute spiritual weapons, he couldn’t help feeling distressed.
He had sold all the materials obtained from Small Flame World in the market. Otherwise, he could use some of the materials of the fire attribute spirit beasts to directly exchange for similar spiritual weapons. This would surely save a lot of costs. Especially the giant sun wood, it was an excellent material for forging fire attribute spiritual weapons.
It seemed that he could only go to the market again. Besides, he hurriedly left the market to chase the woman before, so he still had something to buy.
“Senior fellow apprentice, is there anything wrong?” Jin Yuhuan noticed the strangeness on Liu Ming’s face, and she asked softly.
“No, we will leave in two days. In addition, Miss Jin, please try to leave as quietly as possible, so as not to attract attention.” Liu Ming returned to normal and said calmly.
He had gotten the pulse connecting spiritual talisman, and he had two elixirs to assist him. His top priority was to end the matter as soon as possible and return to the cave house to break the bottleneck behind closed doors.
“Okay, we will meet here two days later.” Jin Yuhuan nodded in response, then she waved her hand and threw out a jade slip.
Liu Ming grabbed it with one hand. After putting the jade slip on his forehead and scanning it with Divine Thought, he nodded and kept it.
“If Miss Jin has nothing else to instruct, I’ll leave first.” Liu Ming cupped his fist and turned to leave.
“By the way, I still don’t know senior fellow apprentice’s name. You are…” Jin Yuhuan asked with a faint blush on her face while lowering her head.
“I’m Liu Ming.”
Liu Ming didn’t say much. He made a gesture and flew toward the market in a black escape light.
After Jin Yuhuan pondered for a while, she flew in the other direction.
An hour later, Liu Ming, dressed in a green robe, appeared again in a street in the Taiqing Sect’s market.
After a short stroll, he walked into a spiritual weapon trading shop of hundred feet high on the side of the street. It seemed to be quite large. The plaque at the door had the words “Fan Xiang Pavilion”.
As soon as Liu Ming entered the pavilion, he saw a middle-aged man dressed in coarse cloth on a chair behind the counter, staring at a damaged throwing knife in his hand.
“Forging materials are traded on the second floor. Spiritual weapon forging and trading are on the third floor.” The man did not look up when he felt someone enter the shop, but he said lightly.
Liu Ming didn’t say anything, and he paced upstairs.
When Liu Ming reached the third floor, he saw a handsome man in white robe in his early thirties drinking tea and talking with a normal-looking young woman with a hot body.
“Miss Fan, it seems that you have a business. I still have something to do. Let’s have a cup of tea again on another day.” The man in white robe saw Liu Ming come in, and he got up to say goodbye to the woman.
“After the spiritual weapon is forged successful, I will definitely deliver by myself.”
After the man in white robe smiled politely at Liu Ming, he strode toward the stairs.
“I’m Fan Xiaoxiang. May I ask whether mister wants to forge a spiritual weapon or buy a finished spiritual weapon.” The woman asked Liu Ming after a charming smile.
“Do you have a spiritual sword with fire attribute, I want to buy one.” Liu Ming raised his eyebrows and said calmly.
“Mister, wait a moment. Ling’er, serve the tea.” After the woman greeted a maid about sixteen years old on the side, she walked to the back room calmly.
The maid immediately poured Liu Ming a cup of spirit tea and stood silently aside.
Liu Ming opened the lid of the cup slightly, and he smelled a faint scent. After taking a sip, he whispered to himself “good tea”. He then closed his eyes to rest.
After about 10 minutes, the hot woman walked out from the back room, holding a long and a short jade box in her hand.
“Sorry for letting mister wait. There are two spiritual swords with fire attribute. One is an intermediate grade with twelve layers of enchantment, and the other is a superb fire attribute spiritual weapon, Crimson Phoenix, with twenty nine layers of enchantment. Phoenix.” The hot woman put the two jade boxes on the table, pushed gently in front of Liu Ming, and said with a smile.
Liu Ming opened the shorter jade box, then a heat flow spread out. A small crimson sword flew out. He launched a symbol at the small sword. After the small sword trembled in the air, countless red runes appeared on the sword, and the runes condensed into twelve layers of thin array while buzzing.
“It is really an intermediate grade spiritual weapon with twelve enchantments. I think it should be enough for this trip.”
After thinking about it in secret, Liu Ming couldn’t help but curiously opened the other longer jade box, and a heat wave hit his face. A small golden sword with blazing fire made a hum and floated in the air.
His eyes twitched, but he silently raised his hand and launched a few symbols at the small golden sword.
The small sword trembled, then the golden ray was released. The golden flames wrapped the entire small sword inside. As the golden flames tumbled, a golden bird phantasm faintly formed. As it flapped its wings, the temperature in the room rose a little.
Then the flames gradually dispersed. With a chirp sound, countless golden runes gush out from the small sword, condensing into a series of vague patterns.
Liu Ming squinted his eyes slightly to count. There were really twenty nine layers of enchantment. He couldn’t help but be moved.
After making a gesture again, the two flying swords in the air flew back into the jade box.
“May I know what’s the price of these two spiritual swords?” Liu Ming asked in a deep voice with a strong expression in his heart.
“Fifty thousand spirit stones for the intermediate grade; eight hundred and fifty thousand spirit stones for the superb spiritual weapon. If mister buys that superb spiritual sword, the intermediate grade spiritual weapon will be a free gift.” The woman quoted without hesitation.
To be honest, the eight hundred and fifty spirit stones weren’t expensive in Liu Ming’s eyes. After all, this sword was a rare superb spiritual weapon. It was just that he wasn’t cultivating fire attribute technique, and he didn’t have so many spirit stones with him.
After some consideration, he pushed the longer jade box back to the hot woman, took the smaller jade box, took out five top-grade spirit stones from the waist cloth bag and handed them to the woman.
“Ling’er, put the jade box back.” After a little hesitation, the hot woman collected the jade box and spirit stones, and she handed the jade box to the maid named Ling’er.
After the maid took the jade box, she walked straight to the back room.
“Does mister need anything else?” The woman didn’t seem to care about Liu Ming not buying the superb spiritual weapon, and she continued to ask enthusiastically.
“My senior fellow apprentice asked me to buy two upper grade soul-recovering bags in the market, but your shop is only selling spiritual weapons, I guess there is no soul-recovering bag for sell right?” Liu Ming touched his nose and smiled slightly.
He had already wandered around the market before. He had seen a lot of low tier soul-recovering bags that he used before selling in some stalls and shops. However, he enquired a few shops about the intermediate grade soul recovering bag and got nothing.
“Soul-recovering bag above upper grade are really really, but mister has found the right person.” The hot woman looked at Liu Ming with a hint of surprise and smiled sweetly.
“Could it be that Miss is selling soul-recovering bag in addition to spiritual weapons.” Liu Ming was overjoyed when he heard the words, but he still said calmly.
“Many of the soul-recovering bags used by the outer disciples in Taiqing are made by my brother. My brother usually stays in the house, so mister may have to wait for one hour if you want the item.”
“It’s okay.” Liu Ming took another sip of tea, pursed his lips, and closed his eyes to meditate.
The woman patted her waist and took out a piece of golden talisman. She chanted and pointed at it, then the golden talisman burned in the air. A golden light flashed out of window, and the talisman turned to ashes in the next moment.
Less than an hour later, a tall, middle-aged man in outer disciple costume walked upstairs.
“Xiaoxiang, who needs an upper grade soul-recovering bag?”
“It’s this mister.” The hot woman hurriedly got up and said with a sweet smile.
“I want to buy two upper grade soul-recovering bags, do you have them now?” Liu Ming also got up and smiled.
“It turned out to be this junior fellow apprentice.” Seeing that Liu Ming was also wearing an outer disciple costume, the tall man walked over with a smile, pulled two black leather bags from his waist and threw them over.
Liu Ming grabbed the leather bag with one hand, then he immediately felt a strong cool air coming out of it. The quality was obviously not comparable to the soul-recovering bag he used before. The surface of the leather bag also had a few clear black patterns.
“May I know what’s the price of two upper grade soul-recovering bags?” Liu Ming nodded in satisfaction and asked.
“One is sixty thousand spirit stones, and two are one hundred thousand spirit stones.” The tall and young man answered readily.
“Thank you senior fellow apprentice, I still have something to do, so I will leave now.” Liu Ming took out ten upper grade spirit stones from his waist and handed them over to the hot woman. He then walked downstairs without saying a word.
Not long after Liu Ming left.
“Fourth Brother, an upper grade soul-recovering bag that cost sixty thousand spirit stones, why are you selling him one hundred thousand to this man?” The hot woman asked softly with her beautiful eyes blinking.
“Isn’t sister saying that this person is the one who sold those fire attribute materials? As far as I know, the eight outer courtyards in the sect recently conducted an introductory trial at Small Flame World, and it seems that there had been some abnormal changes in it. The people who died there were actually more than half. This had never happened before. Since this man can survive and get so many materials, he isn’t an ordinary outer disciple.” The tall man said in a deep voice.
“I also think it’s a bit weird. I think this person is buying the soul-recovering bags for himself.” The hot woman showed thoughtfulness.
“In short, it is by no means a bad thing for us to make friends with such potential fellows.”
Liu Ming had already gone far at this time. Of course he didn’t know the conversation between the two siblings.
After purchasing some fire-attribute talismans and elixirs from several stalls, he left the market and flew toward his cave house on a black cloud.
